Raindrops keep fallin’ on my head by B. J. Thomas

This is the song written Burt Bacharach and Hal David, and sung by B. J. Thomas, is the title that gave me the idea for my poems and through them to Bob Dylan’s A hard rains are a gonna fall, which I blogged last night. B.J Thomas was born in Hugo Oklahoma on August 7th 1942, but grew up in Houston Texans, he sang in the church choir, and started singing with bands while still at school, he had lots of hits, but the ones most will remember are Hooked on a feeling, Another somebody did somebody wrong song, and best known Raindrops keep fallin’ on my head, which was used as the theme song for the film Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid. Here it is with stills from the film, thanks to Ushichannel2 and You Tube :

    • Thanks, I also love this song, and was in my early teens when it came out, and I saw the film, which I also loved. I suppose that is why when I started playing around with rain for the poems this title and line came into my head. Thanks for following, liking and commenting, best wishes and blessings, Charles.

      • My pleasure, Charles. I don’t think I’ve seen the film. Or maybe I have but forgot. One of my first poems was also inspired by this song. I’ll post it one of these days. Blessings, Irina.
